Bible Study Tools and Bible Version Information

AV = Authorized Version. 1611 = the year the AV was originally published.
The Authorized Version has since come to be known as the King James Version.

The King James Bible

...and other translations

The King James Bible Page contains articles and essays, answers to frequently asked questions, and more, relating to the Bible version controversy.

Most Christians are unaware that there exists a significant difference between the KJV and Bible versions published in the last 100 years— a difference of doctrine and authority, not one of mere dialect and style. They are told that the KJV is antiquated, hard to understand, and inaccurate. But these claims are far from the truth.

In many cases modern translations, such as the New International Version (NIV), New American Standard Bible (NASB), and so many others, delete verses and words equivalent in quantity to the entire book of Second Peter.

Learn about the history of the Bible, the value of the KJV, and the problems of academic seduction surrounding modern Christian scholarship, and arm yourself with the pure, trustworthy words of God. An easy way to dive in is to watch some of our videos.

Are you saved?

In our modern culture, we are taught the lie that there isn't even anything we need saving from.

However, the Bible tells you that your soul is immortal but is condemned to hell already if you do not believe on the Lord Jesus Christ (John 3:18). If you are not completely sure where you will spend eternity, please read this gospel tract.
